Matthew 25 Resource 10/20/09-Amos House (Providence, RI)

Amos House is a nonprofit social services agency that provides hospitality and direct services to the homeless and poor of Rhode Island. We work in collaboration with other agencies and groups to address issues of hunger, homelessness and poverty.

Amos House is known for its soup kitchen but we’re much more than a meal. Amos House is people and a promise. A promise to always be here, providing direct support for men, women and children in Rhode Island who are hungry, homeless and in crisis. We feed as many as 800 guests a day at our soup kitchen, the largest in the state. And we provide vital social services, permanent and transitional housing, job training programs and a micro-business which serves and empowers people right here in our community.

Since 1976, our dedicated staff, board of directors, volunteers and donors have accomplished so many great things:

We’ve served more than two million meals.
We’ve provided emergency assistance to more than 500,000 men, women and children.
We’ve secured ten properties which have housed more than 2000 people over the years.
We’ve graduated over 200 men and women from ACE, the Amos Culinary Education program.

We’ve provided more than 200,000 nutritional meals to school-age children and high quality catering service for over 350 business meetings and events. All through our More Than A Meal micro-business.

Our goal is to practice our motto: “Helping people help themselves.”
